Mother’s Day at Stars!

The Stars family has been an extension of my life and activities with my mother, Vera, over the years. As we near Mother’s Day on Sunday May 10th, virtually every vendor at Stars, Stars & Splendid, and Stars Too has something that would bring a smile to mom’s eyes! Start your shopping early, get ideas, take notes, remember where you saw it, and if you love it, don’t hesitate for it may be gone when you return! The Stars’ stores have so many ideas and options it gets overwhelming, much like our love for moms, grandmothers and other remarkable women in our lives. Happy Mother’s Day!

Here are some things that my own mother would love — maybe yours would love them too!

Colorful additions to her collection of owls and songbirds celebrate her love of Nature.



For those moms who love working out in the garden there are a myriad of wonderful planters.


If a day at the beach is her passion, select a handmade shell box to hold treasures.


For the home, the simplicity of ivory furnishings are an easy fit for most home decor. Eastlake influences have delicate flower designs and a feminine element for mom.



A cheerful throw pillow with bold red is a constant reminder of your love; perfect for the bed or favorite chair.


Vintage glass and marble lamps with shades of deconstructed fabrics or lace will be appreciated on the side table by her favorite stack of reading materials.


Cut and pressed glass pitchers and accessories cast rainbows of light across the wall and will be lovely intermixed with existing pieces as mom entertains.


A wonderful retro mirrored vanity in a smaller scale can be placed in the bedroom. Fresh flowers will multiply with all the reflections!


Glasses double as vases for the cuttings from the flower garden each morning.


Timeless fashion includes anything turquoise!


The contrast of black and clear baubles and beads dancing around the neck is true artistry.


Animal prints run wild through the stores — a classic that defies age.


Red makes a great accent to any wardrobe — this time in a roomy leather bag with strap.


Furnishings in wood run from small compartmentalized organizers…


…to oversized cupboards with glass doors on top for display and wooden doors below for storage.


Perhaps a set of mugs that hold memories from when she was a girl will end up in her cupboard!


A well loved game for family night or a jewel-toned memory vase may be the answer.


Luggage with favorite travel destinations may take the place of the traditional box and wrapping paper with an airline ticket tucked inside!


Even a great old wavy glass jar or canister holds beauty. Fill it with sharpened pencils and have a notepad nearby for all the to-do lists.


Over the years many people in the Stars family have met my mom, Vera. For several years, she joined me at the store on weekends. She would sit near my space working word-find puzzles and sewing her yo-yos from fabric scraps that people kindly brought in for her! She has lived with my husband and I for the past eight years as we journey with her through the progression of Alzheimers. Miss Vera and I (the reality of calling her ‘mom’ slipped away three years ago) have always had a special connection. She will always be first and foremost my beloved mother, but as I became an adult and began to visit with her more, we bridged the mother-daughter relationship and became great friends. I had the incredible opportunity to know her as a woman — a midwestern farmer’s daughter, Swedish in heritage. We have gone through many highs and lows over the course of my life, but have always agreed that we love each other through thick and thin. I love you, mom! Today and always. Love, Janice

Sugarplum Delights

Shopping for great gifts is easy when you join us at Stars, Stars and Splendid, and Stars Too. The difficult part is the process of narrowing down the selection and sticking to the task at hand! Open daily from 11:00-6:00pm gives ample time to browse through the many aisles and displays to find the perfect gift for friends, family, and often times, a special item for yourself!


From collectible political advertising pins from the past…


…to oversized original paintings by local artists, the selection has never been better or more diverse as our dealers fill their spaces.


Well-loved and worn dolls delight the child and the collector alike.


Nothing beats a cold winter night like a new design book filled with fresh inspiration and ideas for the home and garden.


For the gourmet cook, clever signage makes for a unique gift to hang in the kitchen or pantry!


Vintage plates, cups and saucers add new combinations for entertaining anytime of year. There is no end to the color options or patterns. You’ll be sure to find the perfect place setting for the hostess and/or host on your list.


For those in love with the grain of wood, nothing beats a series of well seasoned wooden bowls in all shapes and sizes. Use functionally or decoratively. When not in use, leave them visible atop a large cupboard stacked and nested for the texture and sculptural element.


In love with plaid? Keep those you love warm in wool shirts and jackets.


Find a great vintage thermos in a matching plaid and venture up to the mountain or over to the coast for a hot cup of cocoa and warm someone’s heart.


For those with a passion for copper; pots, pans, molds and kettles are in abundance and spilling off the shelves.


Prized porcelain basins in blue patterns and designs for the more distinguished taste!


A large selection of vintage and antique gilt frames for those who prefer gold are scattered throughout all three stores. Perfect for artwork or to hang a miniature inside a large frame. A more contemporary idea is inserting a chalkboard for daily notes and reminders!


Hang a wreath on the door as you decorate, open your door and heart to those you love, celebrate the magic of the season, and celebrate the essence and the spirit of the Holidays every day of the year!


From all of us at Stars, Stars and Splendid, and Stars Too, Happy Holidays!
